How to find .NET Developers with Boolean search strings

To hire .NET Developers, use Boolean search to enhance your pipeline with relevant resumes and profiles. We have built a few simple strings to help you. Modify and execute them on Google to find Developers who can use languages and technologies of the .NET framework.


Generic search string to find .NET Developers

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) “.NET Developer” -job -jobs -sample -examples

The operators intitle: and inurl: produce results that include the word “resume” in page titles and page urls respectively. We use the NOT (-) operator to exclude irrelevant results, like sample resumes. Exclude any irrelevant terms you see appearing frequently in your results.


Searching for .NET Developers profiles

Many Developers are members of programming sites like GitHub and Stack Overflow. Run Boolean strings on Google to search through these sites. A good approach is to include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • “badges” “.NET Developer”
  • “.NET Developer” “contribution activity”
  • “.NET Developer” “joined on”

Add more criteria in your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
